11:01 pm
denying the state, the judge said backers failed to show they would succeed on appeal. first because the minimal evidence does not support the defense and second because they may have no legal standing to appeal. and allowing same sex marriage to marry would be lawful. another reason he sited against it was that it would force california to continue to violate plaintiff's constitutional rights. he discounted the argument that a stay was in the public interest. and evidence during the trial showing it is proposition 8 that harms the state of california.
